Pet Adoptions of Cuero Looks for Kennels

Posted: Updated:

Pet Adoptions of Cuero is asking for help in collecting kennels.

On average, Pet Adoptions of Cuero receives one dog or cat daily. This means at leas 365 pets a year. This has left some tight spots for pets in the facility.
Pet Adoption of Cuero is a 501C organization, which means they depend on volunteer help and donations. This month Pet Adoption of Cuero is gearing up forces to collect kennels in hopes of facilitating the transition from pets living in the shelter to being in foster homes.

Vice President of Pet Adoptions of Cuero, Mary Jane Debee, has tried to make life easier for these four-legged friends.

She says they're always in need of "time, volunteers...we never have enough volunteers ... and anybody that can come out and give some attention to them would be great."

According to Mrs. Debee, most shelter visitors come in looking for puppies or smaller dogs. Unfortunately, that is what the shelter has less of. Most dogs coming in are bigger and older dogs. Dogs that still need human affection, she adds. Having bigger dogs, does call for collecting bigger kennels. Mrs. Debee says any kennel size 10 by 10 will be ideal for for keeping these dogs 

The goal of collecting such kennels is to have them available for families who may be fostering a pet. If they are unsure of fostering due to the lack of space or a kennel, hopefully having one donated will allow them to take a pet home. This initiative is part of the foster program at Pet Adoption of Cuero.

Debee along with other volunteers help daily to keep the shelter running, she adds people should really "just give them a chance... they will steal your heart"
